    Inhaltsangabe

    A journalist's 20-year fascination with the Manson murders leads to shocking new revelations about the FBI's involvement in this riveting reassessment of an infamous case in American history.

    Over two grim nights in Los Angeles, the young followers of Charles Manson murdered seven people, including the actress Sharon Tate, then eight months pregnant. With no mercy and seemingly no motive, the Manson Family followed their leader's every order - their crimes lit a flame of paranoia across the nation, spelling the end of the 60s. Manson became one of history's most infamous criminals, his name forever attached to an era when charlatans mixed with prodigies, free love was as possible as brainwashing, and utopia - or dystopia - was just an acid trip away.

    Twenty years ago, when journalist Tom O'Neill was reporting a magazine piece about the murders, he worried there was nothing new to say. Then he unearthed shocking evidence of a cover-up behind the "official" story, including police carelessness, legal misconduct, and potential surveillance by intelligence agents. When a tense interview with Vincent Bugliosi - prosecutor of the Manson Family, and author of Helter Skelter - turned a friendly source into a nemesis, O'Neill knew he was onto something. But every discovery brought more questions:

    • Who were Manson's real friends in Hollywood, and how far would they go to hide their ties?
    • Why didn't law enforcement, including Manson's own parole officer, act on their many chances to stop him?
    • And how did Manson-an illiterate ex-con-turn a group of peaceful hippies into remorseless killers?

    O'Neill's quest for the truth led him from reclusive celebrities to seasoned spies, from San Francisco's summer of love to the shadowy sites of the CIA's mind-control experiments, on a trail rife with shady cover-ups and suspicious coincidences. The product of two decades of reporting, hundreds of new interviews, and dozens of never-before-seen documents from the LAPD, the FBI, and the CIA, CHAOS mounts an argument that could be, according to Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Steven Kay, strong enough to overturn the verdicts on the Manson murders. This is a book that overturns our understanding of a pivotal time in American history.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "What if everything we thought we knew about the Manson murders was wrong? O'Neill spent 20 years wrestling with that question, and Chaos is his final answer. Timed to the 50th anniversary of the Manson murders, it's a sweeping indictment of the Los Angeles justice system, with cover-ups reaching all the way up to the FBI and CIA." (Entertainment Weekly)

    "Chaos is less a definitive account of the murders than a kaleidoscope swirl of weird discoveries and mind-bending hypotheticals that reads like Raymond Chandler after a tab of windowpane." (The New York Times

    "O'Neill's discoveries are stunning, especially when he's discussing the inexplicable leniency shown by law enforcement officials and by Manson's parole officer." (The Washington Post

    Peak Journalism and mindblowing insights

    I came across Tom O’Neill and this book after listening to JRE where Tom was a guest. The Tate murders have always been fascinating and due to the fact so much is unknown to the public, they still are quite mysterious.

    This book is a deep dive into the story of the murders and a lot more which isn’t well known to most people. The book covers the murders, the Manson family and a lot of background information to the whole story. Tom O’Neill spend 20 years to do his research and the book he delivered is just peak journalism. Also don’t miss out on his social media sites to get more insights on the topic.

    Kevin Stillwell is a perfect choice as narrator.

    I hope there will be a part two where the rest of the open questions will get answered. Keep up this fantastic work Tom!
